This is an embarrassing and perhaps stupid question but here goes. I currently weigh about 170. I note the load says 150. Should I not buy these since I weigh over the recommended load? Or, does it not matter too much?

Asked by: MarySunOceanSnow
The weight limit matters if you are snowshoeing in powder where you need as much flotation as you can get. If you are above the weight limit, you will sink right into the snow. If the snow in your area is more slushy or crunchy, the weight limit does not matter as much.
